SHAKOPEE, Minn. — Jan. 16, 2014 — Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) today announced that the company has kicked off the new year with a 2014 Electronic House Products of the Year Award for its sleek and stylish T2x wireless user interface.

"2013 was a big year for RTI," said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. "We introduced a number of innovative new products, including the T2x, which certainly made quite a splash with its elegant design and advanced features. I can't think of a better way to start off the new year than to see this unique controller honored with this prestigious award."

Electronic House magazine's Products of the Year Awards recognize the best technologies, products, and services for the connected home. Winners were chosen by a panel of distinguished industry leaders, along with the editors of Electronic House and CE Pro. Based on the criteria of creativity, innovation, functionality, aesthetics, and lifestyle benefits to the consumer, the T2x was selected as the winner in the "Universal Remotes and User Interfaces" category.
Defining engineering excellence, the remarkable T2x is the fifth generation of RTI's renowned T2 remote control platform. A full complement of hard buttons provides quick, intuitive control, while the 2.8-inch touchscreen interface can be custom tailored for full control of devices throughout an environment.

RTI is taking this design platform to unprecedented levels with cutting-edge features that leverage today's technologies to provide a more satisfying and reliable control experience than ever before. Innovations include grip sensors to keep the remote awake during use, an accelerometer for instant-on control, an edge-to-edge touchscreen that enables improved gesture control, dual RF modes, Wi-Fi®, and more. The combination of the T2x and an RTI control system provides the power, customization, and advanced features needed to make controlling today's electronics a true pleasure.
